    Key has nothing to do with that specific exe setup only. But its related to edition that it is pro or home series or any other. Its also not dependant on 64 or 32 bit. You can download either of those but specific edition only

    Windows 10 Education

    Windows 10 Education is the educational equivalent of Enterprise


    "Windows 10 Education builds on Windows 10 Enterprise, and is designed to meet the needs of schools staff, administrators, teachers and students. This edition will be available through academic Volume Licensing, and there will be paths for schools and students using Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Pro devices to upgrade to Windows 10 Education."
    Introducing Windows 10 Editions | Blogging Windows

    So, if you want any of the Enterprise features like AppLocker, BranchCache, Credential Guard, Device Guard, DirectAccess, Start Screen Control w/ Group Policy, User experience control & lockdown, or Windows To Go, then choose Education (or just to get the most bang for your "buck").
    Windows 10 editions - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    My 2 cents, if you are going to be an IT guy and setup a bunch of virtual servers to mimic a corporate environment, or an aspiring programmer that needs to test their software in highly restricted OS', I'd highly recommend the Education version. If you're just using it for everyday school tasks, then you should probably just stick with Pro. But why not just get all of the features you can, and use them or not? The resources are only being consumed if the features are activated, which most aren't by default because they're usually enabled by corporate Group Policy. The only resource you'll use is some extra hard drive space.

    As for activating keys, most likely the ones provided to your school via DreamSpark are what are known as Volume Activation Keys. Microsoft has been very stringent with those keys only working on the Volume editions of their products. So most likely, using a key from DreamSpark on a Retail disc, or upgrade disc won't work. And the key for Education will definitely not work on any Retail discs. It has to be the Education disc.

    According to this chart (Windows 10 editions - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia), no. The only difference is Long Term Support, which means the OS is guaranteed to be around and continue to receive updates for a certain period of time so companies that invest in the upgrade aren't forced to upgrade too soon. Corporations like to make long-term investments in their infrastructure. And with the security concerns of today's world, it's more important than every to make sure you continue to receive the latest updates to patch vulnerabilities.

    You saw this recently with the End of Support for Windows XP. MS will no longer make any updates to the software. Only Vista+ continue to receive updates.

    Sorry for bumping, but I really need this question answered. I used the media creator tool to get Win10 Pro, can I use the dreamspark key for multiple versions to activate windows?

    Win10

    Hey guys, new guy here

    Yesterday I got my new PC and decided to install Win10 from my DreamSpark account (got one on my Faculty). I downloaded Win10 - Multiple editions and then created an ISO from it. Then, I tried to install Pro version.. However, when I reached the screen where I could choose which OS to install only two were offered: Pro and Home edition. Both in x86 architecture!!!

    I installed Pro x86, but it's a waste of resources really (it can operate on less than half of my RAM). I want x64. Can anyone please explain how to do it?

    Thanks in advance.

    EDIT> DreamSpark seems to offer 32/64 bit versions in the same download, so I guess I couldn't have made a mistake there.

    Windows 10

    I believe Windows 10 Education can be installed on two machines. Anyway on of my machines, which I think I may have installed 10 Pro before that was not activated, I installed Windows 10 Education with a valid key.

    When I type winver, I get an expiration date saying its an evaluation copy ? It is not suppose to be an evaluation copy.???
